2017-06-20 12:32 House intervention / intervention en chambre

Parliamentary reform, Standing Orders of the House of Commons,

Réforme parlementaire, Règlement de la Chambre des communes,

Mr. Speaker, as I said, we hoped to have a discussion to build on the ideas, to perhaps invite witnesses to discuss how it was done in other countries, and to see what other people did.

What ended up coming out of this was a few things committed to in the platform, rather than the very wide range of things coming out of Standing Order 51 debate. There were things the opposition members themselves wanted to discuss but did not actually want to discuss.

The process did not work as I would have liked. However, this is where we are. We have a motion that will improve the rights of members in the House. It is very worthwhile and very important to proceed with this.

Monsieur le Président, comme je l’ai dit, nous espérions avoir un débat sur les idées pour, peut-être, inviter des témoins à parler de la façon dont on a procédé dans d’autres pays.

Tout cela a abouti à quelques-unes des choses promises dans la plate-forme, plutôt que la vaste gamme de choses découlant du débat sur l'article 51 du Règlement. Il y avait des choses dont les députés de l’opposition voulaient eux-mêmes débattre, mais dont ils n’ont pas débattu, en effet.

Le processus n’a pas fonctionné comme je l’aurais souhaité. Cependant, nous en sommes là. Nous sommes saisis d'une motion qui améliorera les droits des députés à la Chambre. Elle est très valable et il est très important que nous l’adoptions.
